Button Factory

Tuesday 24th November 

GHOSTPOET performs on 24th November in The Button Factory and tickets go on sale 10am Friday 13th March. Doors 8pm.

The two-time Mercury Prize nominee Ghostpoet (aka Obaro Ejimiwe) follows up 2017’s acclaimed 'Dark Days + Canapés’ with a record which couldn’t feel more prescient, a dystopian snapshot of the universal unease and anxiety we feel as we enter into this new decade,  an uncertain future distilled across these 10 vital tracks.  

The bluesy, gritty ‘Concrete Pony’ is the perfect entry point to the record – in Obaro’s own words; “It’s a snapshot of where we’re at as a society I feel, we seem to have everything and nothing at all. Infinite possibilities and choices galore but we seem set in stone, frozen in place, oblivious to the storm clouds in the distance…”

Tickets are 20 euro plus bkg fee and are available from  Selective Memory or

Ghostpoet recently announced his new album ‘I Grow Tired But Dare Not Fall Asleep’, which will be released through Play It Again Sam on May 1st. 
Alongside this he shares the first taster of the record, “Concrete Pony”, accompanied by a visionary, mind-bending video.

‘Ejimiwe always has an atmospheric palette to lay his tremulous growl atop’

The Irish Times

‘a mesmerising meditation on uncertainty and unease, which bridges the gaps between urban poetry, post-rock and brooding electronica’

Q magazine

'A fantastically uniform piece, Dark Days + Canapés boasts a rare sense of unity, the aural palette bringing together hugely disparate elements to conjure something of real impact'

Clash Music

Watch “Concrete Pony” video here

The video, shot by Thomas James, acts as a brilliant companion piece. With its distinctly Lynchian feel, surreal, foreboding and beautifully cinematic, it is a must watch.

Recorded in London and written, arranged and produced by Ghostpoet, ‘I Grow Tired But Dare Not Fall Asleep’ incorporates a myriad of sounds and styles but is anchored by the more alt-rock sonics presented across his last two records.  It features guest vocals from an eclectic mix of artists; Art School Girlfriend, Skinny Girl Diet’s Delilah Holiday, SaraSara and Katie Dove Dixon.  Obaro has always had a keen ear for collaboration, having worked with the likes of Massive Attack, Nadine Shah, Melanie Di Biasio, Maximo Park’s Paul Smith and Damon Albarn’s Africa Express amongst others across his distinguished career.
